In the round-up: McLaren reserve driver Lando Norris says he’s hoping to get some time in the team’s car soon so he is better equipped to serve as a substitute should a replacement be needed for either of the team’s race drivers.

What they say

Norris, who tested the team’s MCL32 last year, was asked when he expects to drive their current car:

I haven’t been told the exact first day I’ll be in the car this season. I think one of the young driver tests I’ll be in. I’ve been preparing for that to make the most use of it I can. It’ll be an opportunity for, if anything happens to Fernando [Alonso] or Stoffel [Vandoorne], I’ll have a bit more of an understanding about the car, be a bit more confident in jumping in and doing a good job. It’s another day for me to improve and get to learn about Formula One. So hopefully one of the young driver tests or a Pirelli test I’ll get a bit more experience.
